eThink Education, now a part of Open LMS and the wider Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG), has won a coveted bronze Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Award for the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology. This category analyses Learning Management Technology based on how the solution addresses businesses’ needs, if the technology is effective and easy to use, how the technology is differentiated from others in the market, and the benefit and impact the solution has for users.   

eThink Education provides a fully-managed digital learning platform, best-of-breed content, and the services that organizations and institutions need to transform their learning programs and effectively meet their learning objectives. eThink's comprehensive eLearning solution includes AWS cloud hosing, implementation, integration, consultation, and management services for the open-source Moodle, Moodle Workplace, and Totara Learning Management Systems (LMS).  

As a winner of a Brandon Hall Award, eThink Education was judged by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives, who score entries based upon the following criteria: 

  • Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation? 
  • Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how does it differ from any competing products? 
  • Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what need does this product address? 
  • Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to experience as a result of using this product? 

“Technology is the great enabler of human capital management initiatives. It has never been more important than during this rapid evolution of remote work that challenged everyone to instantly adapt,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer and awards program head Rachel Cooke. “Winners of Excellence in Technology Awards are critical drivers of their organizations’ success, especially in these disruptive times. Their solutions resulted in substantial benefit to their business and the human capital management function. That is the ultimate differentiator: the positive business impact of technology.” 

“The Excellence Award in Technology also emphasizes the value of collaboration between HCM leaders, business leaders and technology developers. To win, everyone must work together to meet the needs of all stakeholders, especially the end-users. Technology Award winners met this challenge and created value for everyone,” said Brandon Hall Group Chief Executive Officer Mike Cooke. 

“We are honored to have been awarded a Brandon Hall Excellence in Technology Award for a second year in a row,” said Brian Carlson, former CEO & Co-Founder of eThink Education and now Head of Sales at Open LMS. “This award exemplifies our commitment to client success in all of our interactions.
